Comment from TAKUYA∞ (UVERworld)
‘The company has once again named our band shortly after deciding the second season’s production.
This will be our third song to provide for the anime and our music is also evolving with the characters.
This song sounds quite different compared to the past two songs so, please enjoy our new music together with the anime.’
Comment from Rin Akatsuki
‘I’m so honored to have the chance to write a song for Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Impure King Arc. I myself am an enthusiastic fan of Blue Exorcist and even after the first season ended, I’ve been still watching the anime as well as event DVDs. I even drew moles imitating Yukio… I’m very satisfied with the song; it goes perfectly with the work’s world view. In this song, I focused my mind on the characters’ strong willpower to stand up against the world so, please stay tuned.’
